For instructional purposes, let’s assume every Leftist calling themselves a “Democrat” is suffering from Stage 4 Obamnesia and are having a hard time understanding why the Benghazi debacle is such a big deal. Most US Ambassadors to other nations aren’t signing up for a suicide mission. Chris Stevens certainly wasn’t and neither were the few protectors he was given. Much fewer protectors than Valerie Jarrett I might add even though he was in a war zone of Commander Leave-No-Drone-Behind’s making.
The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month said Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi was under attack “are murderers of my son.”
Charles Woods was reacting to accounts by Fox News sources that a request from the CIA annex for backup was denied by U.S. officials. His son, Tyrone Woods, was killed in the Sept. 11 assault.
“They refused to pull the trigger,” Woods said. “Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son.”
Woods said he forgives whoever denied the apparent request, but he urged them to “stand up.”
Intelligence building for weeks and pointing to an attack on the anniversary of 9/11 went unheeded. Oh, but there is so much intelligence out there they’ve said. Unlike say, one Richard Clarke memo saying somewhere, some time, some place Osama bin Laden is going to try to attack the United States – again. Mainly, because he’s still around since Clarke failed in his job for eight years to stop him.
“Send help!” the Ambassador cries to a stonefaced Hillary Clinton. Why do you need help??? We liberated Libya. “You’re welcome!”, she replied.
A distress call goes out. The barbarians are literally banging on the gates and there is nothing but voicemail answering in Washington, D.C. It’s the dinner hour, dontchaknow? That’s the best case scenario. The worst case is that the Not Ready For Primetime Players were paralyzed by wanting to get permission to fly into Libyan sovereign air space. The space we provided them while they refused to protect our embassy.
What do we honestly expect Obama or Clinton to do in this situation? To behave Presidentially? Now who hasn’t been paying attention for the last four years?
With troops an hour away, Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama and Leon Panetta made a conscious decision to leave their representatives’ fates to an al Qaeda mob. No back-up. No fly-by. After all, you can’t just send the most sophisticated and heavily armed military into a conflict that hasn’t already been wargamed for months.
The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Thursday.
At a Pentagon news briefing, Panetta said there was no “real-time information” to be able to act on, even though the U.S. military was prepared to do so.
“You don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on,” Panetta said. “(We) felt we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”
Apparently al Qaeda in Libya was slyly not updating their Twitter feed to provide their exact GPS coordinates. When the Chinese or the Russians attack, I hope they will be respectful of our need to prepare first. Regardless, what’s done is done. Leon Panetta would not send our troops in to save our Ambassador and his team because they would not be prepared for every eventuality. Unlike an unarmed diplomatic team purposefully made defenseless and whose concerns were ignored for months who should have known better.
Are any of our other Ambassadors in hotspots listening to this?
Which brings us to Cindy Sheehan. I know we have a longstanding rule about not bringing Mama Moonbat’s name back up on this blog but this is relevant. For years, Sheehan and “Camp Casey” were covered and promoted by the Leftwing Media while Bush was in office. For years, Sheehan defiled her son’s memory and sacrifice to be a useful media tool against George Bush. But where is this same media for Charles Woods? Is the loss of his son somehow less worthy since there’s a “D” in the White House for the next few days? Maybe Woods should travel abroad and call Obama the terrorist that he is to the delight of the NY Times editorial board.
Mother Sheehan allegedly had Absolute Moral Authority ™ because her son died on a mission he volunteered for twice. Is he supposed to camp out on the streets of Hyde Park, Martha’s Vineyard, or San Francisco and Las Vegas star-studded fundraisers to hold up posterboard signs, dance with Al Sharpton or hug on Hugo Chavez when his Navy SEAL son was made to die because it was inconvenient for Obama to leave the campaign trail and focus on his job for a few hours? The one job he actually has to do. He had one job! That was it.
As ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Google Current, the New York Times, the LA Times and the rest jockey to change the subject in the waning days of this election, the one thing that can’t change is what bald-faced propagandists they’ve been throughout this scandal from Candy Crowley on down. Charles Woods raised a certified hero and they have kidnapped his son’s story and are holding it in the concrete basement of an undisclosed location so that it never sees the light of day. Al Qaeda in Libya killed the people in our embassy. The Mainstream Media buried the truth with them and blamed it on a Youtube video. If they think that the Islamonazis riot over low-rent Youtube videos, just what do they think is going to happen when
Harvey Heavy Weinstein spikes the Osama football right before the election?
We should probably go ahead and arrest him now. Pre-emtively placate the savages by beheading in advance of its release. The future does not belong to those who slander one of Allah’s most loyal followers.
Woods is being forced to give his interviews to Glenn Beck and Lars Larson for Christ’s sake. Is Scott Pelley too busy gobbling down Obama’s protein throatshake to dust he knees off and cover a bona fide scandal not involving a BBC television host? People died in this one.
Woods, in interviews earlier this week, also described a series of conversations he had with administration officials at the memorial service held Sept. 14. He said that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — despite signs early on that militants were behind the attack — pledged to him at that event that she would pursue the maker of an anti-Islam film that had been linked to other protests.
“Her countenance was not good and she made this statement to me … she said we will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted,” he said on radio host Glenn Beck’s online show, adding that she also apologized.
Woods said he “could tell that she was not telling me the truth.”
Clinton made good on that promise though. That filmmaker is still in jail WITHOUT BOND
and hasn’t been heard from or seen by anyone. No media demanding an interview. No ACLU filing suit. No Hollywood First Amendment Firsters withholding their million dollar contributions to Herr-sein Obama’s brownshirts. In fact, the latest articles in a Google News search show no updates since September 28th.
The message to our nation’s enemies can’t be clearer. Attack us with impunity and we will not protect our own. The message to our warriors is unmistakeable. Your President hates you as much as what you stand for and will leave you to die while on the mission he assigned you. And the press will not even try to get to the bottom of it.
Let’s talk about poll numbers. Or Big Bird or Binders or Bullshit.
Or you can add
Insult Ignominy to Injury:
“Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?” — Vice President Joe Biden to Charles Woods, grieving father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, during a memorial service at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
I believe the saying is that you have balls the size of church bells. And they make a clangedy-clang sound when I walk down the street. \
Either way, inappropriate for a goddamned Memorial Service, Plugs. It’s bad enough you killed his son, do you have to let everyone know that you’ve got his balls on your mind at the funeral? Save that for the bathhouse with Barry. Impeachable offense IMO.
